My story

[p]Ive started writing this a number of times and just cant seem to find the words, so giving it my best shot. This year I am running the London Marathon in the hope of raising money for two charities which are very close to my heart. [/p][p][br][/p][p]The first of these is the Alzheimer’s Society; my Grandad lost his battle with this horrid disease on Christmas Eve 2017. It was following 12 years of trying to fight it and a journey which I wouldn’t wish on anyone. The Alzheimer’s society does so much in researching, raising awareness and supporting not only those affected but their families as well. The work they do really is invaluable and I want to do anything i can no matter how small to help them with this. [/p][p][br][/p][p]The second charity is a little more difficult for me to talk about. TimeNorfolk supports women and men who have suffered a pregnancy loss due to termination, miscarriage, still birth or facing an unplanned pregnancy. My journey with Time began in January 2020. I suffered a miscarriage in August of 2019 which nearly broke me. As difficult as it is for me to write this, I was in a very dark place, one which I didn’t talk to anyone about, not even my husband. I was at the point where i really didn’t know what to do, I had heard of Time through a friend, and on one of those dark days I finally decided to make that phone call, which ultimately saved me. I will forever be so thankful for them and the work they do, they helped me to grieve the loss of my baby, to work through those feelings and to help me understand and move forward. Therefore it only felt right that i had to run this year for them, for the work they do and the women they support, as well as our angel baby Pips. [/p][p][br][/p][p]So that in a nutshell is what this is about. Anything you can spare will make such a difference to both of these charities and it really would mean the world to me. I will also bore you with updates on the good and the bad runs, and all that goes in between.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read this. [/p][p][br][/p][p]xxx[/p]
